Mr. Yoy is on a tear to make Big E a viral video star. Mr. Yoy is always making suggestions on how we can accomplish this.
So this poor girl, Rebecca Black, recorded a song and corresponding video for her 13th birthday called "Friday". To date it has received 113 million hits on YouTube - I'm not making this up. That is up there with Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber. I don't know if you've actually heard the song, but it is pretty bad. I would feel bad for her, but she is actually making some money selling it on iTunes. I hope all of the ridicule ends up paying for her college, because I'm pretty sure this will be her one and only "hit".
Anyway, getting back to my story, Mr. Yoy had a great idea. What if he could teach Big E the words to Friday? What if we then recorded it and uploaded it to YouTube? So Mr. Yoy started playing the song for Big E and sure enough, he started singing it. Even worse, he started requesting it.
Today, I bit the bullet and downloaded it on iTunes. I am one of the suckers paying for Ms. Black's college. Big E insisted on listening to it on repeat all morning.
I was about three "Fridays" away from ending my life.
I pulled myself together, turned off the computer, and took the boys downstairs to eat. I survived.
